Michael Pollan's "Food Rules"

In this article from the New York Times magazine, Michael Pollans talks about navigating the supermarket jungle, avoiding all those chemical-y products that even so-called "nutrition marketers" deem healthy.

He writes in his article: "One of them defended the inclusion of Froot Loops on the grounds that they are better for you than doughnuts.")

His suggestion for a solution? Return to how we used to make our decisions, before we had food pyramids and health marketers, by following the "food rules" passed down to us for generations by friends and family. They then put together this cute little slideshow of the best "food rules" he received via comments. Here are two of my favorites:
